    Every known culture? Dunno about that... many cultures, yes.

    But if you look at the details of the different flood stories, there is not much overlap, except there was a flood involved. Things like mass extinction and saving of two animals of every kind is unique to the Christian flood myth, AFIAK.

    And what might those explanations be? Are you talking about Christian explanations or some other religion?

    No dice. If the quantity of water required for a global flood were underground, it would turn the continents into quicksand.

    (Spartacus)
    I'm free.
    And what do I know?
    I don't even know how to read.

    (Varinia)
    You know things that can't be taught.

    (Spartacus)
    I know nothing.
    Nothing!
    And I want to know.
    I want to--
    I want to know.

    (Varinia)
    Know what?

    (Spartacus)
    Everything.
    Why a star falls and a bird doesn't.
    Where the sun goes at night.
    Why the moon changes shape.
    I want to know where the wind comes from.

    (Varinia)
    The wind begins in a cave.
    Far to the north, a young god sleeps in that cave.
    He dreams of a girl...
    and he sighs...
    and the night wind stirs with his breath.

    Quite a few deal with saving animals as well as people.

    Practical question: Fresh water fish in salt water - or vice versa? How did that work during the Great Flood.

    We used to fish a lot in Lake Maracaibo which is brackish.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
